Brave posties to deliver a different kind of package with charity striptease

Rugby Editorial 7th Nov, 2019   0

A BRAVE group of posties will deliver a different kind of package when they perform a ‘Full Monty’ striptease to help Rugby’s homeless.

Colleagues from the Royal Mail’s Mill Road sorting office are holding a fund-raising evening for homelessness charity Hope 4 on Saturday (November 9).

And headline act The Poster Boys – a group of Rugby postmen – are hoping their performance is first class.

Co-organiser Jodie-Lee Smith, who works at the Mill Road sorting office, said she wanted to help the charity in memory of a relative who benefitted from it.

“I had a cousin, David, who sadly isn’t with us anymore who was supported by Hope4, and I wanted to give a little back in his memory.

“Another reason we chose Hope 4 as a charity is the posties walk the streets of Rugby every day and cant help but notice the homeless problem has become a huge issue in the town. Hope4 do some fantastic work to try and help the situation.

“We couldn’t have done it without the support we’ve had from all the posties, the large donation we had from Rugby Rokeby Lions, and other smaller donations.

“We’d also like to say a massive thank you to Tracey McLaren of Raise the Bars, who has given her time and expertise to teach the boys their routine, and The Railway Club for allowing us free use of their venue.”

The evening will feature an all-postie Stars in their Eyes, a grand auction, a male vs female postie quiz featuring ‘horrible’ forfeits for wrong answers, a performance by Strictly Jitterbug dancers, a lucky dip, and The Poster Boys’ racy finale.

The event will be hosted by drag queen Fergus Kinnan as Flora Tubb, with a DJ set and karaoke from Paul Sammon.

It takes place at the Railway Club in Hillmorton Road from 7pm on Saturday (November 9). Although tickets are currently sold out, staff at the sorting office customer service point are taking names if any become available.
